Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joshua L. Brand, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Christopher M. Epps.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Clark B. Thornton, Senior Counsel; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Dina Shabayek and Rob McGuire, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Following a jury trial, Christopher M. Epps (“the Defendant”) was convicted of first degree felony murder and sentenced to life. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction and that the trial court erred when it denied his request for a special jury instruction on eyewitness identification. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
